Exchange Exemplar: "How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life"

adam_smith_portrait.png

Any effort to improve your life would probably not begin at the doorstep of an economist. 

But let's keep an open mind about this.  Adam Smith, the father of modern economics, is best known for writing about "the invisible hand" of the market. 

But he also wrote works about morality and encouraging good behavior.  Russ Roberts dug up this more heart-centered version of Smith for his own book, How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life.  Russ Roberts joined us in 2014, and we revisit the interview here.
